Marvel's What If...? season 2 is a ride through the bizarre and unpredictable world of the Marvel Cinematic Universe multiverse - except this time, it's turbocharged with imagination.

Imagine a playground where your favorite Marvel characters live totally different lives and have different powers. I'm talking about classic heroes and notorious villains who had their lives flipped upside down because somewhere, in an alternate reality, a butterfly flapped its wings differently. And just when you think you've seen it all, What If...? throws a curveball with a brand-new character who's just oozing with so much potential, you can't help but think, "This is going to be epic for the MCU."

And it is.

Uatu the Watcher, our cosmic tour guide with the best view in the multiverse, is back in What If...? season 2. He's not just showing us new worlds - he's giving us a VIP pass to revisit some favorites from season 1, like the incredible Captain Carter. But, this time, Peggy isn't just hopping through her own timeline - she meets a whole new crew of characters and variants from the vast expanse of the multiverse. It's like going to a superhero reunion and finding out that everyone has a twin!

From familiar faces with unfamiliar twists to fresh heroes ready to make their mark, this season of the Disney Plus show is like a cosmic "Who's Who" of the MCU.

Let's look at the 7 best new variants and original characters in What If...? season 2, where the impossible becomes possible. Each character is a delightful surprise package, wrapped in "what-could-have-beens" and "I-never-knew-I-needed-this-in-my-life". Some will make you cheer, some will make you gasp, and others might just break your heart - but that's the beauty of the multiverse: it's an endless buffet of possibilities.

Whether they're wielding new powers, facing unheard-of challenges, or just showing us a different side of themselves, these characters are here to remind us that in the MCU, anything - and I mean anything - can happen.
